I have always been a go-getter. Marking off a to do list brings some sort of joy to my life. In years prior to becoming a mother I worked very predominately for a direct sale company. That company is still a leader in the direct sales industry and led to many valuable training's that still guide me today. During my time with this company I had the pleasure to train with the CEO of the company, several top trainers and motivational speakers and enjoyed many recommend reading materials. I will say I probably have many "self help" type books that have lead me in a better direction and will continue to recommend them as I think of them. It is because of this company that I still indulge in these type of reading materials.
I consistently refer back to "Eat That Frog" as there are a great deal of productivity solutions in this book, but the key ends up being to eat the biggest, yuckiest, juiciest frog right away. Do your dreaded tasks first! Now, on a mom note this book could be a bit reformatted as sometimes is it best to choose the tasks best done before the children wake up or while the kids are preoccupied. However, you look at it books that can guide you to create a better you in a format that works for you, and while making you a better mother.
Isn't it funny how many times it is a product that provides us solution to daily issues? It wasn't until my second, Gretta, was sleeping through the night around 7 months that I realized my 2.5 year old, Holden, was capable of doing the same. Being mom it is common to feed into each child when they wake creating a common wake up issue. This leads to minimal sleep for mom and poor sleep quality for the kids. We didn't implement all of these at once, but have found resolve in all the sleep issues we have encountered at some point in each of these products.
Products that may help solve sleep problems in babies and toddlers:
Some of these may feel extreme, but coming from a mom of 3 children ages 3 and under. I need as much sleep as I can get. If I can find a solution I will use it. I have found these options, they have worked. Reminder, things generally only work with children if you remain consistent for several weeks. Things that may not seem like they are working may feel like a god sent after two months. Stay persistent!
